Editorial Reviews


"The writing style is clear, direct and informal, and the examples are nicely balanced around the world. ... Anyone interested in continental- to global-scale particle and dissolved fluxes from the continents to the world ocean will benefit from having this material close at hand." - Chris Paola, Oceanography

"For university libraries and many research institutions dealing with global and regional change, this reference work is indispensable. To the best of my knowledge, this is the only public global reference database on river discharge to the coastal ocean. The authors who must have put an incredible amount of time and dedication into this work deserve great respect and thanks." - Environmental Earth Science Journal

"This is a very good book, both timely and much needed. If you are interested in rivers, how they reflect the way earth systems behave, and how we influence them, then I recommend that you buy this book: you will not be disappointed." - Philip N. Owens, Progress in Physical Geography

"This reference work is indispensable... The authors ... deserve great respect and thanks." - Jörg Matschullat, Environmental Earth Science
